~My~dear[ 



your sentiments and those of 






expressed in your joint letter of July 29, I960, ^ 
"concerning the activities of the FBI and my administration 
of its affairs were most heartwarming. 

Any Success this Bureau has achieved -is 
due, of course, to the loyal and dedicated service of .my 
associates throughout the organization. 

iwas particularly- pleased with ypur ref^ 
erences to '"The FBi Story" and "Masters of Deceit. ^' 
Mr.' Whitehead, certainly deserves the universal praise 
he received for his thorough andiactual account oiour 
Jiistory and responsibilities. The latter publication 
was written as a useful text for students and other Amer- 
icans interested to learning more about the objectives and 
operations of ,the communist movement. Letters such as 
yours reassure me that it was, not prepared in vain. 4

find my admiration deepening. Too often what you 
have pointed out has been true. ' 

Few of us realize the tremendous train-

American oitizens, And few of us realize the time 
and personal sacrifices this program entails on the 
part of everyone making up this splendid organization..

Thank you for your le|ter -of August 8, 1960. 
Your comments certainly reflect, that you have read "Masters 
of Deceit'* In a thoughtful manaer. - ' 

I wQuldlike to.pdint out that my "book mentions 
the motive of a feeltog;of spite against America because of .an 
imagined wrong as only one of seyeral motives inducing persons 
to betray their country fpr a foreign- granny. You will recall, 
* that| also discusse&the. fact that many persons here, believing- - 
Russia is working for a. better world, ,hav„e, offered their services 
to^ffat country. - *" " 

:^i ^ . lam sure joyt will agree that a betrayal of our 

, country is not the solution t<Tour problems. As Americans Ave 
f§ge a great challenge in making this Nation a better place in "which, 
t^vp. If v?e i??ork hard to uphold the Mghfest principles of 
^nocracy > y/0 \?ill aspire to the ideal of justice for all.

'•No, 5 democracy is perfect. " There have been many incidents in #<u3fe6&/ 

United States history which have caused individuals or groups to feelJPr 5 ^^ 
that an injustice has been;deait to .them. 

I would 1 like to list only two examples out of many that could be given. 

We: could go back only twenty years, to the early part of the Second 
Wprld War, when close tolOO, 000 Japanease were deprived of their 
constitutional rights, uprooted from their homes and occupations, and 
forced into security camps in our mid -western states. This is not an 
imagined wrong . 

As^a second example I will give you the American negro. At the 
present time millions of Negroes are deprived of their constitutional rights. 
Freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, the right to vote, and racial 
discrimination in all-walks of life. This is not an imagined wrong. 



t 



s long as injustices such as these occur, there will always- be groups 
or individuals that will feel destructive to our American way of life. 



lira only a sophmore in High School, and I by no means consider myself 
as well educated or as well informed as you are, but I do believe that the 
impression you gave in your book would tend to mislead your readers, if 
I ! m wrong would you please take the time, to correct me, or correct 
yourself. I remain sincerly yours,

B# letter 8-8-60, captioned individual, a high, school sophomore , 
has written the Director concernin^ Slflasters of Deceit . Tt He states that 
Mr. Hoover's' book reflects that one of the reasons individuals betray their 
count ry is a feeling of spite against America because of an imagined wrong. 

[ goes xmiio say that some individuals and groups- have stiff ered real * 
injustices hrthe United JStates and mertions specifically the placing of 
Japanese Americans in security camps du ring World War II and also 
discrimination against the Negro J Istates that as long as such injustices 



occur, individuals willieel desteucuye- to the American way of life. He . 
concludes by asking the Director to clarify ihe impression given in "Masters

This youngster appears to be quite sincere in his concern over 
the fact that injustices in our society do occur and do cause certain groups 
and individuals to act against our country. It is nded that "Masters, of Deceit" 
iriehtibns the motive of a feeling of spite against America because of an 
imagined wrong as only one of several inducing persons to betray their hi 

.country. The book discusses other motivations, including the mistaken belief Mr 
by some individuals that Russia-has, abolished injustices such as anii- Semitisnft 
andjfacial discrimination. It is felt that we should point out tcT~~bhat 



'Masters of Deceit

TRUE COPY 

August 1, 1960 

Mr. J. Edgar Hoover: 

I am writing to you as a member of the John 
Birch Society and also as an American so fully aware of the 
danger facing this country at this time, that when some real 
Patriotic true American, such as yourself' does all he can 
to preserve our way of life, then it is time to drop everything 
and to let one such as yourself know, that there are many, 
many people who are trying to help you on the best way we 
know how, I am a housewife and.mother of 3 children. My son 
will be of service age in 3 yrs. , and if he is to fight or die for 
his oountry, then I want him to know the whys and wherefors. 
I have read your book, "Masters of Deceit" and it was just 
wonderful; if every American would only read it he would 
become aware that we have got to get busy now. May God 
Bless You and help you in your work, as I know that 
sometimes it seems useless. I do not expect a reply from 

you as I know how every busy you are.

Good Luck Always

Dear Mr, Hoover: 

Eecently, I*ve come across the argument that most or all people

Having reac TH&SIBBS IN DECEIT , and your chapter on tt Communism 
vs # Jews," 1 also agree with the position you take— that any 
person of^Jewish faith or extraction loses his Jewish identity 
if he becomes a Communist* 

What interest© me, though, is the question of incidence. One can 
point to statistics showing large Communist parties in other countrie s 
tut are there any statistics on: "Background of Communist Party 
Members.* 11 or "Backgrounds of Pellgw Travelers* 1 * 

Do these statistics show how many members of the Communist party 
were formerly Jewish? lioes it show number of Catholics, Protes- 
tants? Are most Communists people who live in the Hew York City 
area? Where do most members live? How many Negroes are party" 
members? How many Italians? Germans? Etc,? 

I would greatly appreciate any information you can give along these 
lines*

I read your "Masters of Deceit" recently. I read Overstreet's "What We^2&^6& 



Must Know about Communism", I have read other books and reports, I am 
in the midst of the Navy's Leadership Program ("student-wise"), I read 
the newspapers and try to "diagnose" what's been said by spokesmen of 
various nations (including our own), I try to read between the lines 
as it seems that's the only way to see what is really said, 

A great deal of thought, study, and time has been devoted to Americanism 
and to Communism, I am no expert on either. Still, I can readily note 
intentions behind both areas of living. 

The reading and thinking I've done has convinced me of one huge truth, as 
I see it; Communists ACT, WE, AS INDIVIDUALS, DON'T.' I think it is high 
time that the individual ACTS, on his own if necessary, I think it absolu- 
tly critical that every loyal American make known his position as an Ameri- 3] 
can not only to himself, but to his fellow-man and to his Country,' It is 
not the province of the communist alone to speak and to WORK for his ideal, 
it is our DUTY and RESPONSIBILITY to do our own speaking and our own acting 
toward FURTHERING OUR WAY OF LIFE, not simply to MAINTAIN IT 11 

I'm not about to get into the ring with a professional fighter and try to 
fend off his blows forever, hoping to eventually win.' I couldn't possibly 
win in that manner; so despite the odds, the abilities, etc, aligned against 
me I would realize that it would be essential that I act in a positive and 
forthright manner in the case of the ring, I'd have to start swinging,' 

And so must the United States of America.' As an individual with little or 
no influence outside my own family and close circle of friends, I can do 
■little in a positive and forthright manner. But that little is being done.' 
Enclosed find my first such action, the statement of my position. This is 
done wholly voluntarily and without thought of reward or "recognition". It 
is done, you might say, to first of all make my position clear TO MYSELF. 
I shall show identical signed copies f i p i friends, acquaintances; anyone 
I can and try to influence them infty a£ least a sir^lar feeling,

Mr. John Edgar Hoover, 

Director, 

Federal Bureau of Investigation, 

United States Department of Justice, 

Washington, D. 0., 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

I have just finished reading your "An Analysis of the 17th National 
Convention of the Communistic Parte, USA." It fascinated me, 

A number of months ago I read your "Masters of Deceit" with equal 
fascination. * 



%t 



mmmmmmmmmmmim 



How — I strongly suspect that, in your position, you would have 
utterly no privilege of answering a question which has come to mind 
repeatedly as 1 think over the various revelations you have made. 

But ~ the question is: Why doesn't some private group of spirited 
United States citizens rise up — secretly, if you please ~ and ^ 
strong-armedly stamp out these subversive groups? I'm not talking j 
about MCCARTHYISM, where suspecting-your-own-br other -could be a hor~ v 
rible thing « but I aia talking about some group, operating with dig-^S, 
nijy, honor and respectability ~ but as tough as Mr. Blood himself, 
Mr. K, — .could move in and do % the deedt 

As I say, I realize your position in the matter. But, I'm wondering 
whether there might be enough ex-FBI men, men who left the department 
with hono: 
seems to 3 



REC- 83 



t men who know the score better than anyone else 
~ might spearhead such a movement? T^

Dear Mr. Hoover, 

I have just finished your fine book "Masters 
of Deceit. " It, has motivated me to write this letter and thus 
initiated an u action I have felt urged to do on many previous 
occasions. 

You may consider this letter as an offer of my 
very humble services, limited though they may be, to workior 
my country as a positive thing whenever my services might be 
voluable to 4fe«m-it. I think you will find that my war (army) 
record speaks for itself. 

I hope that your group continues its/good fight 
against Communism.

had written with several quotations with his subject. We, as 
ministers of the Gospel, are indeed grateful for your sincere zeal 
in ferreting out the enemies of our American democracy. I shall 
continue to try and influence people to use your book and the truth 
of it to expose this subversive influence and challenge American 
Christians to awaken to the dangers.

Mr. J, Edgar Hoover 

Director of F. B. L ; , 

Washington D. C. 

Dear Sir: 

Helen Wood Birnies* speaking last winter to this 
community resulted in our Ladies Aid (Lutheran-E. L. C.) 
acquiring your book "Master^ of Deceit, " which I found 
soul stirring-enlightening-and timely - especially so with 
the progress of recent events, as we proceed these very days* 

And so I wrote the editor of the Spokesman-Review, 
Spokane, Washington suggesting they publish "Masters of "Deceit" 
by chapters daily as they have brought various good books to 
their readers from time to time. I had also added that the 
publishing of "Masters of Deceit" in all of the newspapers 
throughout our United States simultaneously might be just the 
thing to reach and awaken our people to the great need for 
fuller understanding and proper action of the problem. I do 
not understand the issues involved, but it could result in even 
a greater sales of your book. 

Being an important election year, it might awaken the 
public to the importance of their choice of those representing 
them, if such a project could be completed or nearly so by 
then. 

May God bless you in your great work. 

Sincerely, 



be

Stringham said his orga^i^afeJn 
will * serve' .as the educational 
bureau for the project. TCliis 
function will include establish- 
ing a library of books, maga- 
zines and pamphlets that ex- 
plain the communist threat to 
our nation. 

"Stay American" was adopted 
by the Jaycees for the express 
purpose of combatting commu- 
nism in this country, according 
to.Jaycee President Dean Smith. 

The Jaycees intend to make 
Ca#a Grande a showplace ior 
Americanism and will officially 
open the program Oct 4 with a 
parade and rally. 

Letters, one from as far away 
as Massachusetts, continue to 
pour' in from people wanting to 
know* how they. can start iimf- 
lar programs in their area. 

Smith said the Jaycees hope 
Casa Grande residents will take 
up the cause and begin 'display- 
ing Jhe, American flag at their 
homes and businesses, 

"We must fight back and our 
best bet is to be so strong in our 
belief! that nothing can swa^

Jaycee committees are con- 
tacting school officials in order 
to promote the teaching of the 
Confutation and BUI of Rights

C.W.S.V.A. BULLETIN 



JUNE-JULY 1960 



GOING HUNTING? 



Member: 
American -Legion PressAssociation 



Of interest, to you is something 
we came across recently. It's a 
new sighting gimmick for shot- 
guns known as the Accrosite de- 
veloped and patented hy Peter 
Costa of Bloomington, (N. Y. a 
WW 2 veteran and ardent sports- 
man, who holds KJ. S? and Can- 
adian patents for the new device 
which* was 15 months in making 
from foiueprint to manufacturing 
etc. and about 1500 are now on 
market. A special feature of the 
Accrosite as we have observed is 
that it gives the hunter fast sight- 
ing from dawn to dusk and gives 
the hunter a sort of microscopic 
look or tends to attach itself to 
the game such as ducks/ birds, 
skeet and other small game. Deer 
hunters who use rifle slugs or 
balls will find it excellent. Accord- 
ing to Costa the Accrosite makes 
safer hunting because a hunter 
would not have to be squinting to 
line up a headlight with a target 
and can concentrate on what he 
Is shoot ing at and it breaks up 



the color "contrast as air game 
takes on color of -their surround- 
ing. It is very simple to attach. 
The priced $2.98 and you can get 
information direct from >the in- 
ventor Peter Costa, Bloomington, 
N. Y. toy mentioning you read this 
item in CWSVA Bulletin.

i tems injhis issue- we4iadLio~omit 
until later issues certain informa- 
tion. £n future we plan to carry 
some interesting articles on var- 
ious WW 1 CWS Installations such 
as Edgewood Arsenal which was 
the world's largest poison gas 
plant run entirely by military per- 
sonnel. Iklso Lakehurst Proving

ent Chemical Corps activities. Also 
items on WW 2 activities including 
Hunsville Arsenal, Biological war- 
fare, etc* 

Hope your 1960-1961 member- 
ship ($4.00) is paid-up so you will 
receive your Bulletins a3 due to 
costs involved in printing and post- 
age we must restrict future Bul- 
letins to membership. We would 
like to do otherwise but since our 
only revenue your association taas 
is derived from your annual mem- 
bership dues we must operate 
strictly x>n pay as you go budget. 

We need *the individual support 
of every member between now and 
October 1, 1960 to go out and 
make a special effort UN YOUR 



OWN LOtiAL AREA -to. .locate

large number of real active mem- f 
bers rwho could be counted upon tc/ 
contact eligible OWS. Your jolj 
will be to *take up where .they 
off. £f in the past 5 years 
haven't made a real effort to locate 
in your own area a former CWS 
why not make it your business by 
October 1, 19S0 to do so or tell us 
who they are and OWSVA will 
cooperate with you to help get

Can we count on your support to-

We request do not ask for copy 
simply. on basis "it's something for 
nothing" as main purpose in mak- 
ing it available to you at CWSVA 
EXPENSE is based on belief you 
are seriously interested in under- 
standing (Red Menace -involving 
you personally and value of safe- 
guarding American- Heritage^ 
from Communistic infiltration in 
U.SjA. They are not playing for 
marbles as the infiltrate govern- 
ment facilities and other organiza- 
tions including 1 veteran groups. 
Time to wake up now. 

We feel every organization in 
U.S«A. ; should make a copy of this 
expose available to all its member- 
ship for 1 study and discussion ser- 
iously. CWSVA feels that in pro- 
viding our membership with, a 
copy at this time should prove the 
best financial investment we could 
make for our educational Ameri- 
canism (Program. To you person- 
ally it should provide an incentive 
to interest all eligible to CWSYA 
membership to affiliate with us 
during^ our (L960 membership cam- 
paign. That requires your personal 
cooperation today. CWSVA, suc- 
cess depends solely on what each 
member does in 1960 to build up 
membership in his local area. We 
need your support now. Mail your 
renewal first so we can mail your 
membership card and copy of, 

| "Masters of Deceit" as our supply 
is limited. Then sign up a new- 
membership in your local area for

23RD ANNUAL 
CONVENTION 



iPlans are now being completed 
for 23rd annual convention of 
CJWSV1A. The time will probably 
be Saturday, September 24, 1960 
or if more indicate pronto October 
1st, I960. Present indications are 
that it will be held in New York 
City. More info will me mailed dur- 
ing August. Majority opinion at 
present is for meeting 7 PM 
SHARP to be followed by family 
reunion dinner. Reservations for 
dinner will be $3:50 per person in-, 
eluding tax and tips. Advise sec- 
retary before September 1, 1960. 
Those who have attended former 
reunion dinners understand this 
maximum price trouble free sys- 
tem (no extras) run on non profit 
basis. 

£ am informed those former 
affairs became a real CWS family 
reunion, well attended and enjoyed 
by members, their families and 
guests and did much to build up 
considerable membership. Since 
many have not attended a reunion 
dinner in several years the cost 
will be negligible compared to 
comradeship involved in meeting 
those you haven't sqqxi in years. 
So advise pronto whether or not 
you plan to attend dinner. Then we 
can send out around September 1st 
the reservation forms. 



_ We hope you read the conven- 

"Masters of t>ecef£?~Th^ks~foi^tion-caH^ 
immediate cooperation. This offer 
expires September 1, 1960. 

Geo. W. Nichols, 

Secty-Treas. 



^As appreciation of your support 
of CWSVA through paid member- 
ship as of August O960 or holding 
1961 card you will be sent a co^y 
of "Masters of Deceit" with com- 
pliments of OWSVA. The author is 
J. Edgar Hoover, ^Director of FBI. 
pue to expense involved no copies 
can be mailed to a member not in 
good standing. As part of CWSVA 
educational Americanism Program 
you will find this 340 page ^book a 
complete textbook that reveals the 
entire communist party setup and 
methods of operaion in U.S.A. and 
what you can do locally to combat 
this menace 

step by step, for its cold facts in 
plain English. Use it as text book 
for local organization study 
groups* 



THOUGHT 
FOR TODAY 



Oespite optimism of many vet- 
erans it is entirely feasible in not 
too near future for the service con- 
nected Veteran to' wake some 
morning and find that many pro- 
visions of new pension law ((PIr 
86-211) covering non service con- 
nected ^pensions which goes into 
effect July a, 1960 will be applic- 
able to them., Just give ihe boys 
spearheading' the Hoover^Bradley 
recommendations time and they 
will get them enacted into law as 
that, is trend. TTOie opposition fig- 
ures that with the apathy of many 
Study it seriously, (-veterans to do nothing to protect 
their benefits, as every service offi- 
cer knows, it should" not be much 
trouble getting veterans on public 
welfare rolls etc. 



al officers you must elect The 
J quicker you mail in before August 
20fch your nominations the quicker 
the Secretary can mail v out a ten- 
tative ballot for you to indicate 
your approval of candidates which 
will help save time at national 
convention, so do give serious 
thought to nominations as those 
finally elected will comprise your 
national executive committee as 
We definitely need officers who will 
render service to you and the as-* 
sociation during 1960-1961. 

We face many serious problems 
in next year to increase member- 
ship and carry out programs to 
make association of more value to 
you. Your personal cooperation 
and your ballot will decide the 
issues. Unlike in other groups in 
CWSVA you have equal voice and 
vote as no delegates are elected to 
solve your association problems 
etc* Thank you for past loyalty 
and cooperation which is deeply 
appreciated by your present exec- 
utive committee.

Of Interest to you is something 
we came across recently. It's a 
new sighting gimmick for shot- 
guns known as the Accrosite de- 
veloped and patented by PeCer 
Costa of Bloomington, <N. Y. a 
WW 2 veteran and ardent sports- 
man, who holds U. S. and Can- 
adian patents for' the new device 
which was 15 months in making 
from blueprint .to manufacturing 
etc. and about 1500 are now on 
market. A special feature of -the 
Accrosite as we have observed is 
that it gives the hunter fast sight- 
ing from dawn to dusk and gives 
the hunter a sort- of. mlcroscdpic 
look or tends to attach itself to 
the game such as ducks, birds, 
skeet and other small game. Deer 
hunters who use rifle slugs or 
balls will find It excellent. Accord- 
ing to Costa .the Accrosite makes*; 
safer hunting because a hunter 
would not have to be squinting to 
line up a bead sight with a target 
and can concentrate on what he 
is shooting at and it breaks up 
the color contrast as all game 
takes on color of their surround- 
ing. It is very simple to attach. 
The price Is $2.98 and you can get 
information direct from the in- 
ventor Peter Costa, -Bloomington, 
N: Y. toy -mentioning you read this 
item in CWSVA Bulletin.

OP DECEIT" 



ally It should provide an incentive 
to interest all eligible to CWSVA 
membership to affiliate with us 
during our d<960 membership cam- 
paign, That requires your personal 
cooperation today. 'CWSVA, suc- 
cess depends solely on what each 
member does in 1960 to build up 
membership in his local area. We 
need your support now. Mail your 
renewal first so we can mail your 
membership card and copy of 
'Masters of Deceit" as our supply 
is limited. Then sign Up a new 
membership in your local area for 
1961 during August i960 so we can 
mail him also his card and copy of 
"Masters of Deceit" Thanks for 
immediate cooperation. This offer 
expires September 1, 1960.

Secty-Treas. 



^As appreciation of your support 
of CWSVA through paid member- 
ship as of August i960 or holding 
1931 card you will toe sent a copy 
of 'Masters of "Deceit" with com- 
pliments of CWSVA. The author is! 
J. Edgar Hoover, (Director of FBI. 
Due to expense involved no copies 
can be mailed to a member not in,

THOUGHT 
FOR TODAY 



^Despite optimism-of many vet- 
erans it is entirely feasible 'in not 
too near future for the service con- 
nected veteran tof wake some 
morning and find that many pn>< 
visions of new pension law (fBL 
86-211) covering non service con- 
nected pensions which goes into 
effect July 1, 1960 will be applic- 
able to them. Just give .the boys 
spearheading the Hoover-Bradley 
recommendations time and they 
will get them enacted Tnto law as 
that is trend. The opposition fig- 
ures that with the apathy of many 
veterans to do nothing to protect 
their benefits, as every service offi- 
cer knows, it should not toe much 
trouble getting veterans on public 
welfare rolls etc. 



maximum price trouble tfree sys- 
tem (no extras) run on non profit 
basis. 

CC am informed those former 
affairs toecame a xeal CWS family 
reunion, well attended and enjoyed 
by members, their families and 
guests and did much to build up 
considerable membership. Since 
many have not attended a reunion 
dinner in several years the cost 
will be negligible compared to 
comradeship involved in meeting 
those you haven't seen in years. 
So advise pronto whether or not 
you plan to attend dinner. Then we 
can send out around September 1st 
the reservation forms. 

We hope you read the conven* 
tion call carefully. Also the nation- 
al officers you must elect The 
quicker you mail in before August 
20th your nominations the quicker 
the Secretary can mail out a ten- 
tative ballot for you to indicate 
your approval of candidates which 
will help save time at national 
convention, so t do give serious 
thought to nominations *as those 
finally elected will comprise your 
national executive committee as 
we definitely need officers who will 
render service to you and the as- 
sociation during 1960-1951. 

We face many serious problems 
in next year to increase member- 
ship and carry out programs to 
make association of more value to 
you. Your personal cooperation 
and your ballot will decide the 
issues. Unlike in other groups in 
CWSVA you have equal voice and 
vote as no delegates are elected to 
solve your association problems 
etc Thank you for past loyalty 
and cooperation which is deeply 
^appreciated toy your present exec- 
utive committee.

RED TAPE 



Due to large amount personal 
items in this issue we had to omit 
until later issues certain informa- 
tion, ffn future we plan to carry 
some interesting articles on var- 
ious WW d CWS installations such 
as Edgewood Arsenal which was 
the world's largest poison gas 
plant run entirely by military per- 
sonnel. tAIso Lakehurst Proving 
Grounds, Willoughby-Nela JPark 
Development Division and AEF, 
groups, etc. Also origin of CWS 
insignia. Also some info on pres- 
ent ^.Chemical Corps activities. Also 
items on'WW 2 activities including 
Hunsville Arsenal, Biological war- 
fare, etc* 

Hope your 1960-1961 member- 
ship ($4:00) is paid up. so you will 
receive your Bulletins as due to 
costs involved in printing and post- 
age we must restrict future Bul- 
letins to membership. We would 
like .to do otherwise but since our 
only revenue your association has 
is derived from your annual mem* 
bership dues we must operate 
strictly On pay as you go budget. 

We need the individual support 
of every member between now arid 
October V 1960 to go out and 
make a special effort SNT YOUR 




OWN LOCAL AREA ^N^^re 
and sign up a new member for 
1960-1961 or -get former member 
to reinstate membership. During 
past two years we have lost a 
large number of real active mem- 
bers who could be counted upon to 
contact eligible CWS. Your job 
will be -to 4ake up where >they left 
off. If* in the past 5 years you 
haven't made a real effort to locate 
in your own area a former CWS 
why not make it your 'business by 
October 1, ,1980 to do so or tell us 
who they are and CWSVA will 
cooperate with you to iielp get 
that DL961 membership signed up?. 
Can we* count on your support to- 
day personally? Thank you.

to read it, I searched the pocket book racks in our local stores, but did ^^'S^S » 
find a copy. Therefore, I wrote to J. K. Gill Co., Portland, to see if^he y^acf 
itj and received their report dated June 9th,, that, they had both the bound Janet 

paper editions and asking if they^ could fill ^ order. I sent them money gor — - 

three copies' pf the paper edition', June 13th. " Hearing nothing from them, I wrote 
thefe again June 28th, asking if ' they had received my, order y then I received a V 
caret' dated July 1st, stating they wereKOut of .stock, but that the books were on I 
order. On August. £th, T received one copy with the dhfdrmatidri that the' other ' 
two copies would be sent as soon as available . 

On August 2oth I wrote them, again, asking why ray order could not be filled, b7c ( 
and immediately received the other two copies, with no notation; however, I 
noticed -that between pages lih and 5 175, In both copies just received, an insert 
,of a heavier paper printed in color Wd Veen roughly torn out, \leaving a ragged 
B edge-in-the binding. This naturally aroused my curiosity/ for Whatever 'the 
-publishers puVinto the (binding, should reach the purchaser intactv 

The Information in this book is. of vital interest to ^all Americans, particu- 
lar]y**at"the present-time, as .a.great^ many people have a ve^ nebulous understanding / 
of ;the-problems presented through the philosophy being instilled into our' American ** 
life through various organizations, schools, etc; If there were copies availr 
able at "5b cents, on the bookracks in drug stores, jsuper markets, etc., it would 
Bcva spl'ehdid means of their getting ihtothe hands of the rank and file; but ^p 
it-would^seem that it is being suppressed. - * J>\ ja%

Recommendations and comments of Division Head (continued) 



"Masters of Deceit" were being used as a standard textbook. However, many 
teachers dislike the use of accompanying work books. In essence, I think the 
idea has some merit if "Masters of Deceit" were being widely used as a textbook, 
(which is not true), but Lbelieve the total overfall appeal would not be broad — 
hot enough to merit the effort of producing it.

You will re call, that the Director received a copy of a letter dated 9-1-60, 
L a realtor in Florence, Oregon, to Cardianal Giant Editions, 



from 

Pocket Books, Inc. , New York City, in which aha ™>ia» ft fl tier r?ff? nt d«H«nity in pur- 
chasing three ^pocket editions or TMasters of Deceit." I I pointed out that 
the Director's book is of vital interest to all Americans and noted that if there were 
copies 1 available at 50 cents on the bookracks of drug stores, supermarkets and the 
like, it would be a splendid means of getting the book in to the hands of the rank and 
file. By letter 9-8^60, Mr. Tolson forwarded a copy o n l letter to 
Edgar- T. Rigg, Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Inc. , publishers of the Directors book. 
The purpose of this memorandum is to set forth pertinent available data from Bufiles 
concerning captioned grocery chains, which are the largest in the country. 

GREAT ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC TEA COMPANY (A & P) 

» A 

Bufiles reflect the Department instituted Antitrust action against A & P 
in 1941, and in November, 1942, a Federal Grand Jury to Dallas, Texas, indicted A & P 
and 11 subsidiaries; on charges of conspiracy to monopolize the food trade* Federal 
Judge in Dallas ordered the indictment quashed and in June, 1943, the U. S. Court 
of Appeals in New Orleans ,refusfag to uphold the dismissal, returned the case for 
rehearing.- The Government dropped the case at Dallas in February, 1944, and on the 
same day instituted new action against the A & P in Federal Court at Danville, Illinois, 
oh the.xsame charges. The trial began in April, 1945, and in September, 1946, a 
judgment was returned against A & P, and the company and. its officers were fined a 
total of $175,000. The decision was appealed and in February, 1949,"the U. S. Court 
of Appeals in Chicago upheld the conviction. 

In September,. 1949, in New York, the Department again filed suit against^ 
A & P and attempted to split the company into 7 parts. We investigated this matter^W 
during 1950-52. The Department was strongly criticized by editorial writers who (jf 
claimed the Government was simply trying to dissolve "big business. " The long Anti- 
trust battle ended in January, 1954, when a compromise settlement was reached. A & P 
agreed to stop certain allegedly illegal practices and the Go vernment ag r eed to drop its 
demands for dissolution of A & P into 7 parts. ^ 1. ; /^^77--^ 0& 

In 1859, George H... Hartford star©*a%iy stored NM^olK City which 
;grew into the world 1 s largest grocery chain— the A & P. In 1957, George L._Hartford,

last reigning figure in the family dynasty, died. In December, 1958, A & P held its 
first public stockholders' meeting which finally gave the public a voice in the manage- 
ment of this giant company. Ralph W. Burger, born in 1889, Kingston, New York, who 
has been with A & P since 1910, has been President of the company since 1950. There 
is no derogatory information in Bufiles concerning Burger and there is no indication 
that we have had any contact with him. 

SAFEWAY STORES. INC. 

Bufiles reflect that in January, 1943*, a Federal Grand Jury in Kansas City 
indicted Safeway and two of its subsidiaries for conspiracy to acquire the business of 
independant retail grocers, and local chains. In March, 1948, following pleas of nolo 
contendere, Safeway and the other defendants were fined a total of $40, 000. , m another 
Antitrust action initiated in Fort Worth, Texas, in November, 1955, the Government 
charged Safeway with attempting to monopolize the retail grocery business in Texas 
and New Mexico. This actionwas adjudicated in December, 1957, by a consent judg- 
ment which was applicable to Safeway's nation-wide operations. Its main provisions 
enjoined Safeway from selling at prices below cost and operating retail stores below 
the cost of doing business. Safeway is currently involved in an Antitrust suit. On 
12-31-59 the Government brought action against the San Diego Grocers Association, Inc. , 
and 11 grocery chains including Safeway in the Southern District of California. This 
suit charges that since 1949, the defendants have conspired to (I) establish mfoitrwrn 
prices, (2) refrain from advertising groceries at less than their minimum prices, and 
(3) induce grocers to adhere to the prices. We are currently conducting investigation 
in&iis matter and the suit is pending. 

We conducted investigations involving Safeway in two other instances, la 
1947, Safeway filed suit in the U. S. Court of Claims to recover $1, 035, 572, representing 
just compensation on sales of over 23 million pounds of beef to the Government. In- 
vestigation was terminated in 1949 at the request of the Department and Bufiles fail to 
I reflect^ any dlappaftton in thifin>matt-Ai» jq 1955, we conducted an Anti-Racketeering 
investigation of | |well-known labor racketeers in the meat cutting 



be 

b7C 



industry in New^ Jersey. In 1951, they allegedly received a $50> 000 payment in return 
for a "soft contract, " which was extended to Safeway Stores in New Jersey. In November, 
1955, the Assistant U. S. Attorney, Newark, New Jersey, declined prosecution in this 
matter since the investigation did not corroborate the original allegation. 

Safeway Stores, Inc. , was incorporated in Maryland in 1926, and today is 
the second largest grocery chain in the country. Robert A. Magowan, born in 1903 in 
Chester, Pennsylvania, has been Chairman of the Board of Safeway- since 1955. His 
father-in-law, Charles Merrill, head of Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Beane 
(now Smith) bought controlling interest of Safeway in 1955. There is no derogatory 
information in Bufiles concerning Magowan and, in 1942, he was an S. I. S. contact 
of -the Bureau's in New York City. 

Tic* ?& - ™ ••*&?? < %% 60 » a dis creet survey of -selected A & P and Safeway stores in 
-the>Washingfoh^Di>.C. area disclosed that these stores do not sell pocket editionsc* 
of books. Bufiles;re,fle.c^e^have not established contacts among officials of A & P 
and Safeway.

Dear Mr. Hoover, 

Recently I finished your book, "Masters of 
Deceit. " Needless to say r I liked it very much. 

I myself think that U. S. 's fundamental mistake 
was in helping Russia from June, 1941, and thereafter,, because 
the Nazis and the Commies, would have fought to a stalemate of 
some kind. I'd be glad to have, your opinion. 

With highest esteem,. I am

Revisions in the Common Uttugy , 



If your congregation uses the Sew 
ice Book anctHymnalflou may have 
noticed that your pastor speaks fewer 
s jvordus Ogives jouihejipmmunion 
'dements. Instead of saying, "Take 
and eat, this is'the Body of Christ, 
given for thee," he simply says, "The 
body of Christ, given for thee." 

The men who prepared the SBH 
introduced the change because they 
found that this simpler form seems to 
have been the earliest form used by 
the church. They also found 1 that it 
is still used by the Greek and Swedish 
churches, and by the Augustana Lu- 
theran 'Church in America. 

This is just one example of the 
liturgical revisions which appear in 
the SBH, Although the basic struc- 
ture and 'most of the material of the 
liturgy remain the same, the changes 
are interesting and significant. Here 
are a few more examples: 
*. -Jn the ; appointed lessons for thedif-, 
ferent days of the church year, three 
new Epistle lessons, four new Gospels 
and several optional, alternate lessons 
appear. In the Common Service Book 
the Gospel lesson for both the First 
Sunday in Advent and Palm Sunday 
was Matthew 11:1-9. This arrange: 
ment was not too satisfactory for 
preaching. "In the SBH alternate les- 
sons are provided for both days, as 
well as the historic passages. 



In the calendar of special days, one 
new day^as added and the date of 
another Say changed. The Festival of 
Holy Innocents was added andL .as- 
signed to December 28. It had long 
been celebrated by-other branches of 
the church and seemed to be an im- 
portant biblical narrative which our 
group had neglected. The date for 
Transfiguration day was changed to 
August 6. The CSB had assigned this 
day to the last Sunday after Epiphany. 
The change was made to bring our 
date into harmony with the celebration 
of other churches. 

A few changes were made in quota- 
tions from the King James Version of 
the Bible. Some words of that version 
have become meaningless or mislead- 
ing. For example, in the Morning Suf- 
frages (page 154 in both CSB and 
SBH) Psalm 88:13 is quoted. The 
CSB reads: "In the morning shall my 
-praycrprevent4hec^ 1 TW#ff w suV; 
stitutes "come before" for the word 
"prevent" which meant "come before" 
in King James' day but does not today. 

These revisions were made 'only 
after careful and prayerful considera- 
tion. The enrichment of worship was 
the constant, primary goal. The 
church at worship will ultimately ie- 
termine how helpful these changes and, 
additions have been in the .attainment „ 
of that goal.

TRUE COPY 



821 West Ramona 
Alhambra, California 



Dear Mr. Hoover, 



b6 



I r am interested in communism and have 
been for along time. I have read your book "Masters 
Of Deceit. " 

Right now I ! m making a scrapbook on it and 
would like to have a letter from you to go inside. 

Here are some of my opinions. I would like 
you to read them in tell me what you thing. 

Decay means to us perhaps decline of health. 
To the communist it means destruction and death. b?c 

We think of communists as demons, evil and cruel. 

In-dvation in the communist party means death, 
or im-prisonment. 

Everyone gives their money, time and life to 
the party. 

The communists are not independanti 

The next thing I plan to do is get a pencil and paper 
and go to people I know, and get their opinions. Also, what can be done 
about it. If you want the results I could send it to you. 

T hank You, 



P. S. I mostly want your opinions.

"MASTERS 
OP DECEIT" 



We request do not ask for copy 
simply on basis "it's something for 
nothing" as main purpose in mak- 
ing it available to you atTGWSVA 
EXPENSE is based on belief you 
are seriously interested in under- 
standing (Red Menace involving 
you personally and value of safe- 
guarding American Heritages 
from .Communistic Infiltration in 
U.SA. They are not playing' for 
marbles as the infiltrate govern- 
ment facilities and other organiza- 
tions including veteran groups. 
Time to wake up now. 

We jfeel every organization in 
U.S.A. should make a copy of this 
expose available to all its member- 
ship for study and discussion ser- 
iously. CWSVA feels that In pro- 
viding our membership with, a 
copy at this time should prove the 
best financial investment we could 
make for our educational Ameri- 
canism (Program. To you person- 
ally it should provide an Incentive 
to interest all eligible to CWSVA 
membership to affiliate with us 
during our 1860 membership cam- 
paign. That requires your personal 
cooperation today. CWSVA suc- 
cess depends solely on what each 
member does fcv 1960 to build up 
membership in his local area. We 
need your support now. Mail your 
renewal first so we can mail your 
membership card and copy of 
**Masters of Deceit" as our supply 
Is limited. Then sign up a new 
membership in your local area for 
1961 during August 1960 so we can 
mail him also his card and copy of 
"Masters of Deceit" Thanks for 
immediate cooperation. This offer 
expires September 1, 1960. 

Geo. W, Nichols, 
Secty-Treas. 



23RD ANNUAL 
CONVENTION 



As appreciation of your support 
of CWSVA through paid member- 
ship as of August J.960 or holding 
1931 card you will be sent a copy 
| of "Masters of Deceit" with com- 
pliments of CWSVA. The author is 
X Edgar Hoover," Director of FBI. 
| Due to expense involved no copies 
can be ^mailed to a member not in 
good standing. As part of CWSVA 
I educational -Americanism Program 
you will find this 340 page book a 
complete textbook that reveals the 
entire communist party setup and 
methods of operaion in U.S.A. and 
what you can do locally to combat 
this menace. Study it seriously, 
step by step, for its cold facts in 
plain English. Use it as> text book 
for local organization study 
groups 



TttOTJGHT 
FOR TODAY 



Despite optimism of many vet- 
erans it is entirely feasible in not 
! too near future for the service con* 
nected Veteran to* wake some 
morning and find that many pro- 
visions of new pension law ((PL 
86-211) covering non service con- 
nected pensions which goes into 
effect July 1, 1960 will be applic- 
able to them. Just give .the boys 
spearheading the Hoover-Bradley 
recommendations time and they 
will get them enacted into law as 
that is trend. The opposition fig- 
ures that with the -apathy of many 
veterans to do nothing to protect 
their benefits, as every service offi- 
cer knows, it should not be much 
frouble getting veterans on public 
welfare rolls etc. 



<Plans are now being completed 
for 23rd annual convention of 
OWSVIA. The time will- probably 
be Saturday, September 24, 1960 
or if more indicate pronto October 
1st, i960. Present indications are - 
that it will be held in New York 
City, More info will me mailed dur- 
ing August Majority opinion at 
present is for meeting 7 FM 
SHARP to be followed by family 
reunion dinner. Reservations for 
dinner will be„$3.50^er^per5OTTIn: *""" 
eluding .{ax~and tips. Advise sec- 
retary before September 1, I960., 
Those who have attended former 
reunion dinners understand' this , 
maximum price trouble free sys- 
tem (no extras) run on non profit 
basis. 

ft .am Informed those , former 
affairs became a real CWS family 
reunion, well attended and enjoyed 
by members, their families and 
guests and did much to build up 
considerable membership.. Since 
many have not attended a reunion 
dinner in several years the cost 
will be negligible compared to 
| comradeship involved in meeting v 
those you haven't seen in years. 
So advise pronto whether or not 
you, plan to attend dinner. Then we 
can send out around September 1st 
the reservation forms. 

We hope you read the conven- 
tion call carefully. Also the nation- 
al officers yotf must elect. The 
quicker you mail in before August 
1 20th your nominations -the quicker 
the Secretary can mail out a ten- 
tative ballot for you to indicate 
your approval of candidates which 
will help save time at national 
convention, so do give serious 
thought to nominations as those 
finally elected will comprise your 
national executive committee as 
we definitely need officers who will 
render service to you and the as- 
sociation^during 1960-1961. 

*We face many serious problems 
in next year to increase member- 
ship and carry out programs to 
make association of more value to 
you. Your personal cooperation 
and your ballot will decide the 
Issues. Unlike in other groups in 
CWSVA you have equal voice and 
vote as no delegates are elected' to 
solve your association problems 
etc. Thank .you for past loyalty 
and cooperation which is deeply 
appreciated by your present exec- 
utive committee. ,

to reinstate membership/ During 
past two ye$rs we have lost a 
large number of creal'active mem- 
bers who could be counted upon to 
contact eligible CWS. Your job 
will be ,to itake up where -they left 
off. Of in the past 5 years you 
haven't made a real effort to locate 
in your own area a former CWS 
why not make it your business by 
October 1, 1980 to do so.or tell us 
who they are and CWSVA will 
cooperate with you to help get 
that 11961 membership signed up? 
Can we count on your support to- 
day personally? Thank you. 



SICK CALL 



Due to large amount personal 
items in this issue we Oiad to omit 
until later issues certain informa- 
tion. In future we plan Xo carry 
some interesting articles on var- 
ious WW 0. CWS installations such 
as Edgewood Arsenal which was 
the world's largest poison gas 
plant run entirely by military per- 
sonnel. Also Lakehurst Proving 
Grounds, Willoughby-Nela Park 
Development Division and AEF» 
groups, etc. Also origin of CWS 
insignia. Also some info on pres- 
ent Chemical Corps activities. Also 
items on WW£ activities including 
Hunsville Arsenal, Biological war- 
fare, -etc* 



Hope your' 1960-1961 member- 
ship ($4.00) is paid up so you will 
receive your Bulletins as due to 
costs involved in printing and post- 
age we must restrict future Bul- 
letins to membership. We would 
like to do otherwise but since our 
only revenue your association has 
is derived from your annual mem- 
bership dues we must operate 
strictly xmpay as you go budget. 

We need .the individual support 
of every member .between now and 
'October 1, 1960 to go out and 
make a special effort 3N YpVK 



The best personal benefits you 
get in life is from the get well card 
you send to former comrade who 
is ill or shut-in at home or who 
needs some infofromyou^ Even you 
would appreciate that thoughtful- 
ness if you were ill. MIZPAH 
means the lord watch between 
me and .thee whilst we are absent 
one from the other. It works both 
ways.

To Our Educators: 

The First National Hank of Cincinnati 
firmly believes In the preservation of the 
American constitutional government. 
Under this government we have a price- 
less freedom obtained through the sac- 
rifices of many who preceded us here. 

This is an Important part of our Ameri- 
can heritage and all citizens should 
recognize, understand and then strongly 
support the basic principle* on which our 
country was founded and built. AH should 
understand the challenges to our Ameri- 
can liberties and be prepared to resist 
them In the Interests of a strong, virile 
and well-informed Inlted States. 
l-^^^^^^^^tiona£ Bank of Cincinnati 

"Masters of Deceit," hoping chaTTnmr 
create an awareness of subversive tactics 
used against us, stimulate an Individual 
sense, of responsibility to inform others, 
and promote a greater appreciation of our 
obligations as citizens toward our country. 
Sincerely, 

Chairman of the Hoard

There are a number of Special Agent supervisors on the Seat of

I have suggested to the ; Holy Cross College iClub off Washington, D. C< 
that it sponsor ^annual award of $25 to be given by the Club to the student 
designated;by/the College as having submitted during the school -year, the&est 
articleior editorial on what democracy means to the youths of America in*a world 
encircled by communism. Iri addition to the cash awardj -the winner would also 
receiver copy of the Director T s;book r "Masters of Deceit, n autographed to the 
student. The Holy Cross College Club of Washington, D. C. , has expressed 
interest in this project because: 

- (1) The Director holds an honorary degree from the. school; 

,(2) Recent incidents on college campuses^ not onlypin this* country 
but in other^parts of the world;^4iave indicated.^ 

play in formulating ;national opinions andjthis highlights^ the need for continued 
indoctrination on American campuses of the.practical day-to-day meaning of 
democracy in oppositions communist; infiltration tactics being perpetrated in the

(3) This is a simple, relatively, inexpensive way for the;iocal ! alumni I 
group^to keep ^a program of active participation with the university in a, very 3^ 

worthwhile field. CK

The Holy Cross College group isfinterested;in.knowing?if the 
Director would be agreeable/to* autographing* a copy of the, book :to the ^student 
winner. I would, of course,, obtain from theSachool the identity of the winner 
order that we could.be assured of the^wort^ness* of the, student to receive an 
autographed copy of the Direc t tor f Sibook'so,that the book cpuldjlHen'be autographed

Dear Mr. Hoover; 



My name is I am a junior 



at Brackenridge High. I recently finished reading your book, 

entitled, Masters of Peceit. I believe that every American should 

be made to read this book, and others like it. So far I have given 

talks about commmism to youth at our school and soon plan to give 

an oral report on Communism. I'm writing to you sir, in order 

that I might know if there are anti-communism Organizations ^ 

whih I could join. If there were more men like you sir, there wouldn't 

be any communism in our country. 

Keep fighting sir and may God bless the F. B. L 

Cordially your

An area where the Director's book, "Masters of Deceit," 
could well be put to use is the Newman Clubs of America, which are student 
groups for Catholic/college students in non-Catholic colleges* There are 
approximately 700 v Newman Clubs on various college and university campuses 
in the country. 



At the Newman C lub convention in Cleveland earlier this month 
great interest was expressed by[ 



] of Oglethorpe University in 



Georgia in the communist infiltration of student groups, particularly the riots b6 
in San Francisco at the time of the Hou se Committee on Un-American Activities' b 7 



hearings in that city. The Bureau sent

In view of the lack of available material on communism on 
many college campuses, I am endeavoring to interest Mr. Thomas W. Pangborn,^ 
wealthy Maryland industrialist and philanthropist, in backing a move to supply 
each Newman Club in the count ry with a copy of the Director's book. 
Mr. Pangborn is weU known tnl | S.J. , who has been our friend 

at Manresa, Annapolis, Maryland, for many years. I arranged for SAC James 






Kelly of Baltimore to call on Mr. Pangborn at Hagerstown, Maryland, and 



have been advised that Mr,

Mr. Pangborn has made large donations to Carroll Manor,

Knight of the Holy Sepulchre. In 1955 he was elevated to the rank of Knight 3 

Grand Cross of the Holy Sepulchre and in 1959 Pope John named him a Knight %

g> By letter dated 6-15-60, Gardiner wrote the Director advising 
he had read Rasters of Deceit" and was impressed with the importance of 
getting its message to the maximum number of Americans . He enclosed 
manuscripts of five proposed articles based on the Director's book which he 
planned to pfint in "Management Information, " a weekly bulletin sent to 
foremen and supervisors in industrial plants throughout the country.. The 
manuscripts were generally accurate and presented an effective summary 
of "Masters of Deceit;" however, some minor changes were suggested. 
Mr. Gardiner was advised by letter on 6-22-60,. that the Director had no 
objection to his printing the proposed articles. Mr. Edgar£ T. Rigg, 
President of Henry Holt and Company, Inc., was advised of Mr. Gardiner's 
proposed articles on the same date. 

Mr. Gardiner, by letter dated 9-20-60, sent the Director 
copies of the five printed articles entitled "Facts About Communism" 
advising they. had been so enthusiastically received that some companies had 
requested permission to reprint them for further distribution to their 
employees. t Mr. Gardiner stated he had suggested to these companies that 
he might furnish them with reprints of the five articles in one leaflet, and /v/t 
noted that this system of reproduction would guarantee the accuracy of the' " 
reprints. Mr. Gardiner requested permission to reprint the articles for

program. I wish to complement you on this book. It is well received, 
and serves well in educating American, citizens to the great dangers of 
fl CommU.N. ism. It has become very difficult to obtain the 50f copy. 
The patriotic book dealers who wish to -carry this book are forced to 
buy either filth or left wing books to receive a few copies of the M. of D. 
This is just another example of the forces at work against us. 

Congrats also on the fine job done by your dept. on the booklet "CommU.N. ist 
Targret Youth. " I have seen the movie "Operation Abolition" twice & will 
see it again Oct. 7th at our Legion meeting.

Dear Mr. Hoover:

I received your book "Masters of Deceit" with your autograph 
^herein and I deeply appreciate the same. 

I was most happy to receive this book as I have wanted for 
some time to read the same and I am sure it will supply me with 
much valuable inforaiation in the organizing of a Citizen's Committee 
on American Strategy. We are hoping to establish a very active 
committee and program in Mobile to help combat Communism and to en- 
deavor to influence our Congressmen to join in the fight against 
Communism and to provide us with a strong military posture as well ^ 
as the establishment of facilities and agencies and the strengthening 
of such fine departments as your own to help combat this menace to 
\ our way of life. 



Again thanking you for this wonderful book and assuring you 
that I deeply appreciate the same, I remain

Dear Mr, Hoover: 

We have read your Book 1r M Masters of Deceit" and 
also the bulletin of Mar, 1, 1960 which tells about the 17th National 
Convention of the Communist Party U. S. A. Both are eye openers 
and real shockers to a complacent population. I hope they both 
have a wide circulation. 

We have purchased the film "Operation Abolition 11 
and are showing it to many various groups here in Qolumbus and 
the surrounding area. The response has been most encouraging be 

and we have a full schedule of showings for October and well into 
November. I am wondering if you could please send us some of 
the copies of your March report or some similar publication that 
would be a good supplement for many of the interested people. 
A number of the viewers will be persons who can use such material 
effectively for the good of bur country. 

Thank you for any pertinent pamphlets etc- Also 
bless you for a job well done. May you have Jong and continued 
success as Director of the F. B.. I. 

Sincerely yours,

Washington, D. C. 

Dear Sir: 

I have just read "Masters of Deceit" and although 
there were parts throughout the book that were difficult for me to 
comprehend, I found the book quite informative. However there is 
one thing I was hoping perhaps you could clarify for me. Why are 
not the people of the United States informed publicly of the known 
Communists and Communist organizations operating within our 
country, so that we as Americans can protect ourselves and our 
families against their malicious attacks ? Why must their names be 
kept in secret? As you stated in your "Masters of Deceit" hundreds 
of innocent people are "taken in" everyday by Communist?? organizations 
and propaganda. If they had been informed as to these organizations , 
perhaps these tragedies would not occur . 

We know the Communists have infiltrated our schools, 
churches/ local, state, and even Federal Government. We as 
Americans sit back and say what can we do? Well>v what can we 
do Mr. Hooyer, when we dont dcnpw what we are fighting? 

One other thing before I close. I would like to summit 
to you a list of publications which I in the past have read. I was 
'imder the impression that they were Anti-Communists jpublications 
but after reading your book, I am not too sure.

«' - Legal, Attache, Rome has advised by, letter 9-23-60 that 

.Johri.C. Hawley, Chief of ihe Book Translation Program, United, Stated 
Information Agency, in Rome, agreed to giye v every consideration possible

Italy* Hawiey explained that if his superiors .approved the idea, the firmj 
Sugar Editorein Milan, Italy, would undoubtedly be ^elected to translate and 
| publish'the book in Italian. Legal Rome requested the Bureau to advise of 
rany suggestions ,as to' the .possible handling of this matter. 

- Sugar. Editore; published the Italian.translation of Don Whitehead's 
"The-FBI Story." At that time, it was noted that the mechanical reproduction 
of the. Book was. of an, excellent quality;,however, the Bureau objected.tp the 

1\ sensational-type art; work .used on ; the dust cover*. which portrayed a Negro, 
lying in the ? .front,seat of an automobile^wit"h gullet holes in the window Of the

It is feltthat we should instructLegat Rome to advice Hawley

portant book on world communism and that its contents should be 
made a vailable to all segments of the American population. Mr. 
] stated this book by Mr. HOOVER, whom the American people 



so greatly respect and hold so highly, would give to the American 
people a clearer picture of the aims and the means of world communism.

to the American public possibly as a Government pamphlet in its IHb7c 

entirety or possibly in a condensed pamphlet form, whichever way J 

the message could best be brought to the bulk of the American \\

people . 



Mr. 



suggested that as a condensed pamphlet it 



would be possibly desirable to make this material available to 
Congressmen to be distributed to their constituents who often 
inquire of them. as to the purposes and aims of communism.

Calvin Johnson, former Congressman from Illinois, who was 
Toastmaster at the recent IACP banquet, telephoned and advised me that he 
had received a letter from the Director thanking him for his remarks at the 
banquet and expressing his appreciation for Mr. Hoover's thoughtfulness 
in writing to him. Johnson advised me that Sunday night he was watching 
the Walter Winchell broadcast and Winchell commented on the Director's 
hook/3 'Masters of Decei tL t and showed a copy of it and expressed sentiments 
directly in line with the way Mr. Johnson feels about the book. Johnson 
further advised that for the first time in his life he is writing a letter to 
a news commentator. He stated he is going to write Winchell and suggest- 
to him that he urge on his broadcast that educational authorities teach from 
"Masters of Deceit" in the senior year of all high schools throughout the • * 
country. He asked that I advise the Director concerning this because of the. 
fact that Winchell may possibly mention it in his broadcast.

Mr. J-. Edgar Hoover 

Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation 

Washington, D. C. 

Dear Mr. Hoover: 

I have just finished reading your book, 
Masters of Deceit, arid it makes me want to spend and give 
my life fighting that poisonous Communism; How I wish 
everyone could read your book! Since that is virtually 
impossible I shall do the next best thing - tell eveifone I can about 

it. y 



I would like to give an oral report on your book in 
my Senior Problems class, October 17, and I wondered where or 
how I could obtain approximately fifty copies of the Communist 
"Daily Worker. " I felt if every member of my class could see the 
magazine first hand, your book and my report would mean much 
more to them. 

If the "Daily Worker 11 is not accessible or handy, 
then any Communist material you might send will do. Better yet, 
will you please tell me where I can find this type of material in the 
Lotf Angeles - Long Beach area. 

Thank you so very much I 

Yours for America;
